Parnell Park is a quiet, suburban street where not much happens. Alice from number 31 craves more from her quiet, single life, governed by private circumstance. Instead she observes the street’s inhabitants, lives such as Kevin and Kim, the beautiful couple from across the road, as charmed as they are charming. Then on a visit to London, Alice sees Kim on a passing train. But when she mentions it to Kevin on her return home, he insists that his wife is in the West of Ireland on holiday with friends. But she knows what she saw. When Alice starts to investigate, her concern for Kim’s life intensifies, and she finds herself in a high-stakes game with shadowy rules, hidden dangers – and unexpected temptations.
